Since this is the unofficial technology board of the DIS, I thought I'd ask a question here... I currently have a four year old white Macbook which is definitely showing it's age. I've been waiting for the new Macbook Pro to be released (which it probably will, during WWDC next month) but the price is really a concern. The current 15 inch model is over $2,000, and with the addition of the Retina display in the upcoming one, the price will be even higher. So, I'm wondering what to get next. Do I spend over $2,000 for another Macbook, or get a nice PC laptop for about $600? The one I'm interested in is an HP from Best Buy. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/HP+-+14...mber/4810889.p?id=1218532170220&skuId=4810889 My other concern are the 'i' devices. I have an iPad 2 and an iPhone 4S. Will both of them work the same if I didn't use a Mac? Losing the wifi syncing is fine with me (I'm not opposed to plugging in a USB ) but I just want to make sure that the iCloud stuff will stay the same with both. They both have 3G if that matters. Any advice or opinions would be appreciated! Thanks!
